TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – With all Florida K-12 public schools closed until at least April 15, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried has activated the state’s Summer BreakSpot website.

This allows families to receive free meals for children under 18.

Starting Monday, March 23, several Tampa Bay counties will be providing meals to students in need.

In order to pick up breakfast and/or lunch, a child under the age of 18 must be present in the car or in person with a parent or guardian over 18 to receive a meal.
